Re: Ignorant keyboard question

I have a similar problem. I plan to use an XPL program that a) lists the
favorate files (including the directory) with a preceeding number on the screen
and ask (use the read from keyboard) for a number from the keyboard. Using the
number read, select (CA) the proper file. The program would be coded into a
XW.KBD key for actual use.
